sandra nickel: Buying is Better than Renting: Here’s Why - 04/16/18 03:01 PM
With interest rates still relatively low, buying a house right now is less expensive than renting in many places, including Montgomery, AL.  Now is a great time to lock into a rate.
Buying is often considered to be financially better than renting over the long run because your mortgage payments build equity in your home, which you will eventually own, while rent only goes toward the upkeep of your home and the pocket of your landlord. That is just one reason buying is better than renting.  Here are some others:

Some home buyers are looking to purchase a "Fixer Upper". They are looking for properties priced to sell, perhaps because they don’t qualify for more expensive homes or … (0 comments)

sandra nickel: Curb Appeal on a Budget - 03/28/18 12:01 PM
When selling a home, curb appeal is one of the most important factors in attracting buyers.  Your yard and the front of your home are the first thing they will see, and while nobody should judge a book by its cover, many people do. The appearance of the outside of the home can determine if a potential buyer will even be willing to look at the inside.  So, attractive curb appeal is vital to getting your home sold.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money to get great curb appeal.  There are many small, inexpensive home improvements that can be done … (1 comments)

sandra nickel: Mortgage Loan Pre-Approval Will Make You Stand Out to Sellers! - 03/14/18 03:31 PM
Across the country right now, the number of buyers seeking homes far outnumbers the number of homes available. Because of this, the housing market is super competitive and buyers often need to do something to stand out.
